Cult filmmaker George A. Romero today announced with his partner Peter Grunwald, and Artfire Films’ Art Spigel and Ara Katz, that App of the Dead, developed with Ohio-based Additive Interactive, is now available for Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

“Given the amount of zombies I’ve brought to life, I figured everyone should be able to do the same,” said George A. Romero.

Developed in coordination with Romero’s latest feature, George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead, which hit theaters on May 28th, App of the Dead casts iPhone and iPod Touch owners as the director, allowing you to turn your friends and family into horrific zombies with over 20 zombie features, including galleries of open wounds, deformed eyes and disfigured mouths. Take pictures or import photos from existing galleries and bring them to undead glory with grisly scars and bloody injuries.

Don’t forget to aim for the head when you use App of the Dead’s custom-built engine to cap your newly created zombies, first-person shooter style. Save the photos, email them to friends, make them part of your own undead slideshow or upload to Facebook and other social networking sites.
